  • Lady Bears: “This is our year”

     

    Their faces are familiar. So too, are the uniform numbers. After all, some of these girls have been suiting up for the Lady Bears basketball varsity team since they were in middle school.

  • U-7 Stallions finish third in national tournament

     

    The Spencer County Stallions U-7 team competed at the 2017 Battle in Rocky Top, a national tournament that drew over 300 teams from more than 20 states to Knoxville, Tennessee earlier this month.

    The Stallions bested a team from Milford, Ohio in their first game, then advanced to the second round, where they topped a team from Athens, TN. That put them in the semi-finals where they fell to a squad from West Virginia. Still their performance was good enough for a third place finish nationally, according to their coach, Michael Payne.

    The outlook for the upcoming waterfowl hunting seasons looks as promising as any seasons in recent memory.

    “It is shaping up to be a phenomenal year,” said John Brunjes, migratory bird coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “We are still at all-time highs for duck numbers with as many breeding ducks as we’ve ever had. It’s been that way for a couple of years now.”
